With clarity and skill, Davaney's authoritative text traces the history of historicism and its various meanings from the German Enlightenment through its Continental and distinctly American developments to its contemporary postmodern incarnations. She demonstrates how it has forced theology to pioneer methods that specifically acknowledge social locatedness, particularity, and pragmatic intent, effectively replacing theology's metaphysical and dogmatic basis with a largely historical one. Yet, says Davaney, Christian theology has yet to come to terms fully with historicism and its imperatives, and her final chapter charts a possible future course.

I did not have the patience to read through this work where the author's ideas are put above the Bible's plain statements. However, it is apparently a good text on the history of this type of historicism for liberal theologians and others.
